Ingredients

  • 2 cup dry roasted peanuts salted or unsalted
  • 2 tbsp honey or 1 tbsp agave
  • pinch kosher sea salt optional

Instructions

  • Place the peanuts in a food processor. Turn the food processor on and let it run for about 4 minutes
  • The peanuts will go from crumbs (pictured above) to a ball, then to a creamy peanut butter.
  • Turn off the food processor, add the honey (or agave) and salt (if using unsalted I'd suggest tasting the peanut butter and adding salt to taste). Continue to process for 1-2 minutes until combined.
  • Place in an air-tight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks.

Notes

-You can use honey roasted peanuts, just simply omit or reduce the honey or agave. Skip the pinch of salt completely.
-If you have raw peanuts, simply bake them for 10 minutes at 350 degrees, let them cool before adding them to your food processor.
-If you find your peanut butter is too thick, you can add a 1/2 tsp. of coconut oil. However, only do this after the 5-6 minutes. You'll be surprised by the texture after the full amount of time. Please note that a quality food processor makes all of the difference!
-For chunky peanut butter, simply chop up an additional 1/4 cup of dry roasted peanuts and fold them in before storing the peanut butter.
-I store my peanut butter in the fridge because I don't want it to go rancid, especially during the summer. I simply remove it from the fridge 20 minutes before I plan on using it.
